Working With Documents

Documents are a crucial part of every job. Documentation can streamline the workflow of projects by providing clear instructions taking note of the status and decisions, and keeping track the small and big details that form the bigger picture. Documentation is often omitted but it is essential to the growth and success of any business or organisation.

The use of documentation techniques has expanded in a way that goes beyond the traditional definition of printed text. Any validation of files that used physical representation of information can be regarded as a document: for example, photographs videos, drawings, or even sketches are equivalent to documents, as is written reports or databases report.

A document can be structured like a list, semi-structured like newspaper articles or books or unstructured like writing a note. Documents can also be classified as public, private or confidential.

Whatever their form or form, most documents produced in an organizational setting follow certain conventions and standards that are widely recognized within the organization. This ensures that every new document is identical in terms of structure and form that creates more transparency and uniformity in the organization’s document ecosystem as well as workflows.
